Sorry dude, but from what I was told they were a back to school option that is no more. You may be able to go into your Best Buy and see if they can locate you one (sweet talk one of the managers if you can). I cannot speak high enough for the laptop myself, though I'm sure one just as good will come along around Black Friday.
This makes sense, since a majority of people buy things in cycles when needed like back to school. I also noticed the Asus i5 laptop for $480 ( a good choice for non-gamers), was also sold out everywhere around me. So both ASUS laptops must have been nice back to school promotions. It's too bad for those who were just now looking for a laptop deal.
Black Friday and end of year sales seems like a good time for a similar dual graphics laptop to come around again maybe by Toshiba, Asus or HP....but who knows, maybe HP will give similar deals since they are going under anyways. But they'll probably be a little more like +$50-100, since the last HP deal was supposedly a coupon mistake....

ya dude... i love how these nubz get on here to talk about stuff they dont know.
i can usually weed them out but its becoming harder these days lol


... but i digress laugh out loud

here is language these youngsters will comprehend:

cheap/expensive price for cheap quality (HP, gateway, compaq) = EPIC FAIL!
cheap price for exceptional quality (asus, apple, toshiba, fujitsu) - EPIC WIN!

wave
Your post was automatically deemed worthless the moment you mentioned apple as "cheap price for exceptional quality"

Can we say macboylover?

Once again...my HP laptop has lasted 4 years and still running flawlessly..no problems whatsoever..so I ask you all..have you ever owned an HP? and if you did you must not be computer savvy to run it into the ground so quickly.

Give me any brand of laptop and I can make it only last 1-2 years if I treat it the way most of you people treat their laptops.

Still..I got the better deal...any way you want to look at it.

Deal with it.

I'd say, "Troll harder" but that would be difficult to accomplish. You're spending more time threadcrapping than using your HP for all the points you've praised. Seems like the only thing need of dealing with is your blatent insecurity.

Thank you so much for your useful info. I'm sure that due to your informative posts, everyone in this thread will realize that your laptop is superior and will rush to return their ASUS laptops in an attempt to get a deal on an HP laptop that has long since expired. Reps to you sir!

Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
LMAO!

Actually I am crying that I missed my 14 day return policy to return my ASUS for an HP Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I have two HPs DVR6000 and a DV7 both had this advertisement:

And neither had multiple thread followings about gaming capability, overclocking, etc. most are "will excel work?" laugh out loud

no need for the e-penis competition.

90% of laptops don't die these days. If they fail, it's usually due to neglect...... like not cleaning out the damn fan heatsink.
That's why 99% of laptops overheat. so much hair, cig ash, dust, and other shit in there.


at $475, the hp was a slightly tiny bit better deal because it had bluray and the 6750m graphics, and slightly better materials. Extra ram is a non-issue because ram is dirt cheap. 2gb of ram is only $4 right now.
I can have 6gb ram today for just $4 more.

at $427, the asus is still a good deal. I'm only missing a bluray player, which i have no use for anyway, as i get my HD porn in another format.
and as the prices drop, i can get a bluray player at a later time for cheap.
laptop dvd burners are only $30 now. It will only be a matter of time before a slim external bluray/dvd burner comes along for cheap after rebate, which you can disassemble and pop into this laptop.

Since the consumer reports don't seem to be empirical enough, here's two cents more. In my personal experience of running a repair business, I saw far more HPs and Sonys than any other brands (though those two about equally) with failures that were more than a simple fix. The most common repair by far was failure of the power relay to the board, followed by screen issues of some kind.

Both of these as mentioned above have to do with how well you treat your lappy. Power supply problems (although due to shoddy solders) result from yanking the charger in and out. Screen problems usually involve dropping or stepping on it. So obviously the two most common problems could be avoided by proper care.

Personally, as a guy who sees a few hundred computers in a year and tears them apart to inspect the quality of their innards, I only use Asus laptops. I don't know if that makes it any more real than a consumer survey, just IMO. I took in my G50VT on trade and kept it. I have since bought two others (a G73 and this K53) that I'm very pleased with.

I've seen some laptop blu-ray drives for about $50 on eBay. Very easy to add if you feel it's a must have. This ASUS lappy lacks Bluetooth as well, but a $1 dongle can fix that. The biggest thing the HP has on this ASUS is the webcam. The webcam on this thing is just pitiful. But other than that (and the fingerprint scanner), all the other features can be added. Heck, you can buy another webcam and use it instead if it matters to you. To me, they're pretty much a wash, but the ASUS wins on reliability.

Plus the fact that $450 was its REGULAR price. If you got the HP for $500 or less, you got a great deal. But at regular, not "HP blundered" price, the Asus blows it away in the performance:price ratio. To get performance that beats the Asus (dual graphics and mx processor), you'd need to configure the HP at over $800 regular price. Bluray, webcam, bluetooth, ram... inconsequential cheap things most people wouldn't use all of anyway.
